Internet in Thailand

Internet in ThailandThe rapid growth of internet usage can lead to extreme bottlenecks, if the provider is not quick enough in advancing his net development. The lack of data transmission rates, turns surfing the internet into agony. It is therefore helpful to be able to fall back on recommendations of friends and acquaintances. The price should not necessarely be the primary criteria for your choice of provider.


In the meantime, the possibility to receive quick internet access using ADSL exists almost everywhere in Thailand. In the early days of ADSL, deployment used to be with an existing telephone line, now they prefer its own line or a fiber line.

DOCSIS - TV network

Thai cable TV network providers have finally noticed that their infrastructure can be used and is suitable for providing internet connections. A splitter separates the TV cable between the television and the so-called cable LAN adaptor. This adaptor then allows internet communication with the PC.

Optical Fibre Cable is one kind of high-speed broadband connection.

As substitute for ADSL, Mobile broadband Internet is better. Satellite-Internet-ipstar is slow in the comparison to ADSL. I think it is ideal for cruise-ships for example.

Mobile broadband Internet
Mobile broadband is a wireless Internet access for smartphones, tablets or Notebooks with portable modem. In the meantime, the possibility also exists for surfing the Internet even if no ADSL is available. With Tethering or a mobile broadband modem, also a PC can use this internet. Tethering allows sharing the Internet connection of smartphones or tablets with other device such as notebook or pc.

According to the provider, this technology should be nearly three times faster than a normal modem connection (up to 153 kbps). Experiments carried out in Germany proved practical results of 60-70 kbps.

Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution, or EDGE, is a digital mobile phone technology which acts as a bolt-on enhancement to GPRS networks. EDGE can carry data speeds up to 236.8 kbit/s for 4 time slots in packet mode.

● 3G
3G technology has a connection rate of max. 7.2 Mbps.

● 4G (LTE)
4G, is the fourth generation of mobile telecommunications technology, succeeding 3G. 4G technology has a connection rate of max. 100 Mbit/s.

Not really flat rate pricing! After a certain data-quantity, it becomes verry slow!

Modern notebooks are usually equipped with integrated components to use the internet in a cordless network company. Normal Desktop-PC's can of course be re-equipped to accept this technology. In the vicinity of some hundred meters around the WiFi hot spots, wireless contact with the internet is possible. Most WiFi hot spots are to be found in Bangkok as well as in tourist centres (airports, large hotels)
